A great last day for six teams. Not bad!

It's looking like a 2-horse race at the top ... I'm hoping it's still a 4-horse race for 3rd thru 6th ...

If you're the Fisher GM, you're aware where the weakness was, and you pin it on Ryan Braun, esp since he was the fallback after we didn't draft Bryce.  12 HR and 36 RBI difference---that's a lot. Should've paid the extra $6. 

Braun can make it up to me over the next two games, but it still might not be enough.

I was hoping to trigger a negotiation ahead of the finish for the split, if it happens. How much more money is the first reserve pick worth than the 10th reserve pick?

As far as the actual ADL race, I'm fascinated of course, but that's a conversation for a different thread. In the PCL I'm just glad we made the 1000 innings. And recognize that having no reliable starters is not a plan.

A heckuva fight for fourth. But what about the fight for first?

I guess they don't want to talk about it because no matter what they say it's bad karma.

Ah, the ebb and flow ... today, so far, is an ebb for the Mob :-)

PS.  Oaks have Dan Straily ... ouch ...

We use the tie rules from the old rulebook for all ties regardless of place, so we wind up with one 4th place team and one 5th, regardless of what the points show.  It makes it completely clean for money and supplemental draft picks.  

I started the week in 4th, but have slipped to 5th (1 point back).  I'm not sure if the ~$400 is worth more than Eloy Jimenez, but I do know that not finishing in the money will mean that I've finished in the money only 13 of 24 years rather than 14 of 24.  Also the team that just passed me will make the money for their 13th time, so that's enough to make me want 4th over 5th.  3rd place just 1/2 point ahead of the current 4th, so we could both make the money, at least in theory.

The only thing order of finish impacts the following year in BABG is the farm pick. The order is 5th place to 12th place, then 4th through 1st.

If there is a tie for 4th, the 6th place team gets the #1 pick and then the 4th place teams coin flip for what is the 8th and 20th overall picks.

If we used the ADL rule for keepers, I'd probably treat the tied teams like two 4th place teams and give them each the one fewer keep.
